    I have been working at Whole Foods Market full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a company, WFM is genuinely interested in the welfare and welling of their employees. Discount of 20-30% is great too! Excellent benefits, especially just being a grocery store. Non-union, which helps foster a "one store, one team" mentality.

    Cons

    Customers can be entitled and rude. Also, being retail, you don't always get the best employee/coworkers and there can be a lot of slack to pick up. Pays well for a grocery store, but not enough.
